FS#12134 - Android: install codecs as native libs instead of extracting them from

Codec files are loaded as dynamic libraries on Android. Instead of extracting them from the packaged and therefore having them present twice on the device this patch puts them into the apk as native libraries. This decreases the size of the installed Rockbox by the compressed size of the codecs. Also, the extraction on first Rockbox startup gets notably faster since it’s less data to extract.

This brings the size of installed Rockbox down from 13.0MB to 8.57MB on my device (Application / Data: 9.6 / 3.4 to 8.1 / 0.5)

(I’m using  FS#12063  so the data value will differ for stock svn but this doesn’t affect the difference. Device is 480×800)
